New research has found that changes to bodily RNA can be transferred to spermatazoa and hence to offspring. This "collapses the timescale necessary for the transfer of genetic information through the germline of a species (e.g. sperm) from hundreds of thousands of years to what amounts to 'real time' changes in biological systems."

This would explain, for example, how human beings have managed to evolve such varied racial features in different parts of the planet, though under classical views of evolution there has not been enough time for this to happen.

It would also reinforce the view simply that we are all part of one large interconnected organism. This organism has become increasingly differentiated over the past 3.5bn years, which when the first differences appeared in the Last Universal Common Ancestor or LUCA that once covered the planet. But it still evolves under an Escher Cycle, as a single interlinked organism.

Andrew Hill, writing in the Financial Times, describes how leaders managing in uncertain times are looking for tools and frameworks to help them plot a path.

The Escher Cycle provides those frameworks, enabling managers to build the business as a living, adaptive organism.

Self-Reinforcing Leadership:

It turns out that the patterns of the Escher Cycle not only apply to businesses but also to personal leadership.

My second book (which I am currently writing) provides tools for leadership in times of change.

This short article gives a brief introduction.

Over the past decade Toyota has grown to catch up and then overtake General Motors as the world’s leading automotive manufacturer.

This short video explains how this remarkable gain can be understood in terms of the self-reinforcing competitive advantage that is generated by the Escher Cycle.

The Scientific American published an article recently on "How Networks Are Revolutionizing Scientific (and Maybe Human) Thought"

 Escher Cycle thinking helps us understand how those networks interact and evolve, not only for businesses but also for other aspects of the world.

A quote and an animation that illustrate how The Escher Cycle also applies to us and Nature, just as much as to business organisations.

Peter Drucker said that "The purpose of a business is to create a customer."
The Escher Cycle shows how.
